As long as we're on the topic of Kreiseliana, I'd like to ask the
following question:

On page xiii of Kreiseliana, it is stated that Kreisel received his
doctorate (in particular, a Sc.D.) from Trinity College, Cambridge in
1962.  But the Mathematics Genealogy Project


claims that Kreisel's doctorate was a Ph.D. from the University of
Warsaw in 1974.  Are both of these claims correct?  Who was Kreisel's
